Pyranha Ripper 2 Whitewater Kayak

Color: Fire Ant
Size: SM
Sale price$1,699.00


The original Ripper is a legendary design that helped usher in a new era of modern boat design. Combining rocker with a low-volume tail, the Ripper proved that you can have it all in one boat; it had enough stability for tougher rivers yet enough play to make the backyard class II fun again.

The design improvements introduced in Pyranha's Ripper 2 take the fun to the next level and open up even more opportunities for it; go faster, surf more waves, drop the tail with less effort, and get even more #RecklesslyVertical. Since the original Ripper came out, Pyranha has had time to experiment and learn from the original design and has worked to make the Ripper 2 do everything you liked in the original... but better.

Key Updates
  • Increased bow rocker for a drier ride and drier surfs.
  • A touch more hull width for more skipping out of features.
  • Softer sidewalls and a slicier tail for more stern squirt potential.
  • Stern edges direct water to create lift and keep the tail dry when you're headed downstream.
  • Better tailored sizing for smaller and larger paddlers.
  • An ovalized cockpit rim to help produce a drier spraydeck fit, keeping even tension the whole way around.
  • Fresh, Scorch-inspired styling.
